Croatia playmaker Luka Modric should be fit to resume training after being given the all clear following a foot problem, the Croatian Federation said Sunday.

The 28-year-old Real Madrid star suffered a blow to his foot during Thursday's opening World Cup match, a 3-1 defeat by Brazil at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo.

"Luka felt pain after receiving a blow against Brazil," said the Croatian Federation.

"He underwent an MRI scan which revealed there was no break nor damage to ligaments."

Modric has since returned to Croatia's Mata de Sao Joao base camp near Salvador and is due to resume training.

Croatia next play Cameroon, who also lost their opening match to Mexico 1-0, in Manaus on Wednesday before ending their Group A campaign against the central Americans in Recife on June 23.
